A Brian Elliott trade would be foolish

Recently there were rumors suggesting the Blues were considering a trade which would send Brian Elliott to a new team. The belief was that the club wouldn’t want to roll with three goaltenders once Elliott returned to full health and it wouldn’t make much sense to retain Elliott, Jake Allen and Martin Brodeur. A lot has changed since the rumor surfaced roughly 10 days ago. Brodeur...

Martin Brodeur gives up ridiculous center-ice goal to Dwight King (VIDEO)

Martin Brodeur has more saves than anyone in the history of the NHL, which means the Blues' new netminder has also given up his share of goals too. But Ol' Marty probably never saw the puck get by him as ridiculously as this shot from Dwight King Thursday night.

Video: Martin Brodeur loses the puck in his equipment

Shortly before he was beaten from center ice, Martin Brodeur enjoyed a good laugh after the puck went missing in his equipment.
